Cozy Book Hop

Thursday, March 14, 2013

As I wrapped up my first major series - Shepherding a Child's Heart - I am so glad I don't do those type of series often!  It's a lot of work to put together a string of posts like that.  Well I hope you all enjoyed it but if you missed it, check it out and join the conversation. 

I'm excited about the next couple of months. I have lined up some great features, and specials, and if it all works out right, it looks like I might be TWO giveaways!  I know, that's exciting stuff. So if you haven't already, sign up to receive Reading List in your email, so you don't miss any of it. 

This past week's most popular link was from Days & Thoughts, A Woman's Must Read: Freeing Tangled Hearts.  If you missed it last week, stop by this week!  

A Woman's Must Read

In an effort to help us build a little more of our community, there will be two link ups this week. The regular Cozy Book Hop, and a social media link up. For the social media section, link up your facebook, twitter, google+ and even pinterest page so that we can follow and support each other. 

The Cozy Book Hop is the a chance to share any posts you've recently (or not so recently) put together on any book, reading, or teaching someone to read. You can include posts where you've done crafts or projects inspired from a book. Any post on your Bible reading is also welcome. There is so much in our daily lives that branch from reading and the printed word, so share those moments here! 

I do ask that you link to a direct post (you are welcome to link more than one post) as a way to respect each other's time. And please include a link back to this party page so others can join in. The code for the button is on the sidebar but a text link is great too!  (if you link up using these two little requests, I'll give your post/blog a shout out on facebook and twitter this week!)

Please take a moment and visit those other posts this week- grab a cup of your favorite warm drink and get cozy!

Shepherding & Instructing a Child's Heart

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

These two books are amazing tools for parents - Shepherding a Child's Heart and Instructing a Child's Heart.  There are so many little bits of information that are invaluable for parents as they continue on the path of raising kids.

I completely understand how these books have become such a staple on the bookshelves of christian parents.

If you started reading Shepherding a Child's Heart but felt attacked, with no real tips on how to proceed, I highly, HIGHLY recommend you read Instructing a Child's Heart, as those little bits of real life tips and words of wisdom are in this follow up book.

Instructing a Child's Heart: Part 5

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

As discussed in the previous part of this series, the follow up book to Tedd and Margy Tripp's Book Shepherding a Child's Heart, Instructing a Child's Heart, focuses mostly on formative instruction.

I wanted to share a couple more examples of this instruction before closing the series with some of the main points I pulled out of the books in and how I'm incorporating them to work for each of my children.

This book is a great tool for some practical outlines for parents to use as they take steps toward truly walking along side their kids.

Instructing a Child's Heart: Part 4

Monday, March 11, 2013

I don't know about you, but after Shepherding a Child's Heart, I was full to the desire to be a parent who really digs deep and works on effecting my child's heart, and not just be a strict disciplinary  But I wasn't full of enough steps to do that (trust me I also know that a 1-2-3 action plan doesn't always work on every kid, but as a mom I needed some kind of frame work to get started in).

And luckily Tedd & Margy Tripp wrote a follow up to the Shepherding a Child's Heart - Instructing a Child's Heart.  And trust me, if you are feeling a little lost after the first book, this book helps give you a little more as far as practical steps to take as you start to really dig into your child's heart and shepherd them.


SHH Feature: Biblical inspiration

Sunday, March 10, 2013

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and I'd agree. However, there is one collection of words that paint pictures that are amazing, and somehow those pictures do not do the words justice.

I shared some thoughts over at Simply Helping Him, that I had on a couple of short little lines from scripture and how the picture those few words paint for me give me a new perspective as a mom. And how important it is to dig into scripture in order to gain such wisdom and allow such pictures to be painted for you.

So if you could spare a few moments to head over to Simply Helping Him and learn a couple little lessons from Sarah and Mary.
